One month of 2019 is already gone! How time flies when we are making beautiful music!
Many thanks to Erin Bennett and Kamila Shahtakhtinski for their spirited “Certification” presentation in January. It motivated us to seriously consider the benefits of being certified. As an added bonus, we got to meet baby Jack! What a cutie!
Our next meeting is February 13 at 9:30 am at Keyboard Connection. Dr. Erin Bennett will present a program about “Transitioning Out of Method books.” This has been a personal challenge for me and I am looking forward to Erin’s words of wisdom. Keeping students on track and motivated after the method books is a stabilizing factor in our studios. Also, we will be introducing the JMTA officer candidates as well as considering the constitution and bylaws revisions. Be sure to come and let us hear your input.
Our meeting is the day before Valentine’s Day. It is an excellent time to remind those dearest to us how important they are in our lives. YOU are special and IMPORTANT to JMTA. Thank you for all you do.
See you soon.
Dr. Sandra Roberts

Call to Order 9:30 am: Dr. Erin Bennett District IV Representative
February JMTA General Meeting
You all will want to be at the next JMTA meeting and program on February 13th.
Dr. Erin Bennett will present a session entitled “Level Up! Ascending Beyond the Standard Method Book.”
This presentation will address the process of transitioning students out of method books and into advanced literature. Focused primarily on Classical-era repertoire, Erin will map a path from Clementi and Kuhlau Sonatinas to Beethoven’s Pathetique.
Come and get inspired to share some new ideas with your own students.
See you there,
